Two best friends who happen to be an Autistic and an English major sit down and discuss media, film and whatever they need to to justify a degree. So come along and waste some time with us or at the very least an hour a week.
Updates weekly unless life impedes us. All episodes can be found at https://www.patreon.com/berricouch
New episodes should be up once a week unless life proceeds to stop us.
Ep 078 - Direct? Adaptations
Finally the contentious category of direct adaptations. Does adding a character for flow of the new medium still make it direct? Is a completely direct adaptation even possible? Will Bee one day reign in her tangents about superheroes? Maybe to all.
Ep 077 - Only the Greatest Hits
Just like bands even books can have their equivalent of a greatest hits album and these adaptations are examples of that. There are lions, rabbits and continual praise of The Princess Bride movie and brief aside about the adaptation that is like ordering a gluten free, vegan pizza just for comparison.
Ep 076 - The Adaptation of Vibes
When an adaptation of a book keeps some aspects but removes others leaving a non-direct adaptation but not one that kept only the best qualities the question then comes up. Did it keep the vibe of the story? We go over 3.5 times that this was done and why we feel that this is a legitimate type of adaptation.
Ep 075 - Autistic Allsorts
Now the rest of the creative field we were too lazy to put in their own episodes. Here are a variety of other creative Autistics who may or may not be known to you. This is a wrap on Autism month here and Bee will sit consumed with rage that she couldn't get all the episodes to be AA titles.
Ep 074 - Autistic Authors
From The Little Mermaid to modern adult fiction, join us as we explore three authors that use their autistic traits and views to create amazing fictional novels. We look into the truly nonsensical with Lewis Caroll, the loneliness of societal isolation with Hans Christian Anderson, and a new perspective on dating and relationships with Helen Hoang.
Also, the moon is not cheese.
Ep 073 - Autistic Comedians
Comedy is not just for allistics. Stand up comedy is often immediately written off for autistic individuals but now we highlight 2 stand up comics who are successful and can act as proof that we autisitcs are funny people and not just buzzkills.
